The Kingdom of Morocco has welcomed the Pan-African Youth Union’s decision to transfer its headquarters from Khartoum, Sudan to Rabat.

The move comes after the signing of a new agreement between Moroccan Minister of Youth, Culture and Communication, Mohammed Mehdi Bensaid and the Union’s President Aliou Oumarou.

The new agreement is set to be ratified at the 4th Ordinary Congress of the Union scheduled for November 15-16 in Niger’s Niamey.

Moments after the signing ceremony, Mr Oumarou said “the Pan-African youth union is very honoured by the commitment of HM King Mohammed VI who has always supported African youth, which will proudly be among their second family, here in Morocco.”

Mr Bensaid said it was only fitting for Rabat to be the headquarters of the Union citing that “HM King Mohammed VI has always emphasised the importance of promoting youth, especially those in Africa”.

“The city of Rabat will be next year the African capital of culture and we will implement programs for the benefit of African youth,” the minister said, adding that the North African country would share its experiences with youth development. 

He is also convinced that the establishment of the Union’s headquarters in Rabat will further promote “an experience exchange.”

The Pan-African Youth Union is a body dedicated to young Africans and aims to promote the principles and values related to peace, democracy and sustainable development to achieve African integration.
